    I’m learning what you like to watch on TV, even if you are bored.

    I really like the rhythm of your poem today. Thanks.

    I hope they don’t play out the whole “Tracy’s dead” idea: mourning, funeral, etc.


    I’m sure there’s not going to be a funeral until they can find a body. In the meantime, anything could happen.

    Telling the police what they saw, and what we saw, and what the Doyle lookalike saw, gives us time to mull possible outcomes.


    Well, it does, I suppose, plus if they skipped the police investigation and just went straight to searching the river, people would be complaining that they skipped over something. It does give us time to mull over who the guy with the cane is.

    If he were the Phantom, he wouldn’t be showing us his eyes, so that’s not who he is.

    The local constabulary is on the case, interviewing witnesses and “cane guy” is listening intently for clues. It seems that he might be going to search for the bodies himself.

    Why do I suddenly have this fear that we’re in store for another rushed, “limp to the finish” ending?


    We have plenty of time and I don’t think you need to worry about a rushed ending. According to what Mike said, this story still has a month left.

    So it’s Doyle?


    Well, it’s hard to say if it’s actually Doyle, but I think it’s someone who looks like Doyle. Is it Watson? It could be. Mike has told us that the fictional characters are non-fiction in Tracy’s world, but I think Watson would have passed away by now, even if he was real.

    I wonder, how do you think the current DT stacks up against Gould, Collins, Kinsella etc.?


    I believe that the current DT is some of the best DT ever. I would say that the stories are a little too complex for some readers, but I enjoy the fact that they have a lot of depth too them. The art is probably the best it’s ever been. You can’t argue against Gould because he conceptualized the whole DT universe that has survived long after most strips of its era of creation have ended. The current team has all their predecessors to thank for their status (“standing on the shoulders of giants”) but I would have to say that the result is outstanding, overall. All of the writers in the history of the strip have had both hits and misses, but the current stories are most often nearer to the top of the heap.
